Beginners Mind

Shoshin, or “beginners mind”, refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner would. - Wikipedia

Speaking from experience - we can get in our own way after years of learning about a particular subject. We naturally develop strong ideas, theories and opinions about the way things are, which can then hinder our learning in the future.
As Shunryu Suzuki explains in Zen Mind, Beginners Mind, “If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert mind there are few.”
